Rarely pure and never simple (1)
This week we discovered that Vintage Bistroclub (previously Zest), has closed its doors and is preparing to open as Joseph next February. The new brand may be familiar if you're a regular visitor to Saint Tropez, where managers have operated several venues under the same name.
The Mairie reported a slight decrease in visitors taking advantage of last weekend's Journee du Patrimoine, due to the poor weather. Venues not normally open to the public attracted around 2500 visitors. 1200 visited the Jardin Exotique, nearly a 1000 visited the Mairie, and 150 turned up to Pavillon Bosio. The event takes place each year around the beginning of October.
Noteworthy events this weekend that aren't in the diary below, include the Gemlucart exhibition raising money for cancer research, the International Tango Festival, and a green walk around the Principality.
What's in the diary ....
Thursday: Borodin & Shostakovich.
Friday: MART Quartet.
Coming up next week, networking for business women, clever Halloween recipes, and Vivanova Art & Wine.
